  • Any Lua exercises? | 2021-05-02
    Though lately my interest is more in using Lua as an intermediate language, similar to how JS is being used as a compilation target for other languages. It can be a good way to add new features and abstractions while still taking advantage of Lua's embeddability. Stuff like Urn (lisp), Amulet (ML-family, OCaml/Haskell-like), and MoonScript (Python-like).

    I've put together a Lua config with Neovim, but it was still kind of obnoxious to put together. Lua isn't that great of a language, because people seem to forget it's an embed-able language for a reason (it's not supposed to give you tons of features). Using something that makes some of your more complex problems easier like Moonscript or Yuescript can make things more complex in regards to your configuration.
  • Customized Python Syntax | 2021-04-09
    I understand that what you're focused on the transpiler (LangTrans), rather than the particular dialect of Python or whatever language you're preprocessing with it. Most similar projects I can think of are really about the particular dialect (like Moonscript for Lua, CoffeeScript for JS, the various CSS preprocessors, etc.), rather than the transpiler itself. Off the top of my head, I can only think of Babel as a transpiler in wide use, but even there the value is in the ECMA features and JS dialects it brings to the table, not ad-hoc syntax sugar.
